This June I’ll be cycling 270 miles over 3 days in my fifth ALS Tri-State Trek.  There must be easier ways to get a bowl of Husky Tracks ice cream but I’m sure it wouldn’t be as rewarding without biking 103 miles on the first day to get it! It’s hard to point to a single purpose for the ride as there are so many good reasons … To support the efforts of ALS TDI and help raise much needed funds … To reunite with the Trek family and experience the camaraderie of a great group of people all focused on the same goal … To remember all those that have suffered from ALS and to continue the hope that it will soon end … To remind myself that while biking 270 miles over 3 days can seem grueling and painful, it can’t be anything compared to living with ALS … But most of all to remember my good friend and adventure companion Robin Ashley who passed away from ALS in 2011.  Robin always lived life to the fullest.  No adventure was too big or too small as long as it allowed him to spend time in the outdoors with family and friends. Please support my efforts.  No amount is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated.

This June I will be participating in a  270 mile charity bicycle ride called the Tri-State Trek.  This incredible event is designed to raise money to end ALS.  Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disorder that paralyzes the body but leaves the mind intact.  Patients, on average, live between two to five years.  As there is no cure; an ALS diagnosis is devastating. We ride to change that; and we proudly support the efforts of the world’s leading ALS research facility, the ALS Therapy Development Institute.  Operating the world's largest ALS research center in a state-of-the-art laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, ALS TDI is driven by a single, profoundly important goal - to discover viable treatments for ALS as quickly as possible. We started as a team 4 years ago riding in memory of our friend, Robin Ashley.  Robin was diagnosed with ALS in 2008 and passed away in 2011 at the age of 54.  Anyone who had the privilege to know Robin remembers his positive outlook, a smiling face, and someone who could become an instant friend.  As our understanding of the breadth of this terrible disease has expanded, we have realize that almost everyone we talk to has some connection to a friend or family member who is suffering from, or has died from,  ALS.  This must stop.  With your help – it will. Each rider on Team Steam Roll ALS has committed to this great cause. The course is difficult and will require long hours of training, but the strength we’ll need is nothing compared to the strength and determination those suffering from ALS show throughout their battle.  It will be demanding but ALS demands our attention and we will do all we can to help. Please donate and help us reach our goal.  Riding is the hard part, donating is easy. .
